Ginny speaks... kind of.

At the risk of Dan Kelineman calling the act of posting Ginny's own words on this blog as "harassment", I will anyway. Ginny actually allowed a few comments on her recent paranoid post about the library. Read them here. Ginny in her own words:

"This display by the West Bend Library lends credence to one thing only, and that is that the only support a gay person could possibly want is affirmative. Do you see books or materials that assist homosexuals who want to leave this lifestyle? How about books about the ramifications/dangers of homosexual activity? "

Ginny also seems to address a comment left by Maria Hanrahan, but she didn't actually post Maria's comment. Stay classy, Ginny!

A reader has registered the domain and has emailed me wondering what they should do with it. Any ideas?

Ginny, I thought you had no problem with homosexuals?

But you just can't resist, can you?

I'm eagerly awaiting Dan Kleinman's comments about how, you know, Ginny's whole crusade has *nothing* to do with homosexuals.

A Charter School grows in West Bend?

First off - sorry about the lack of posts lately. I have been busy with my day job, but things do seem to have been pretty quiet lately.

That said, I have gotten a few emails asking to post about the proposed charter school in West Bend. I must admit I don't know much about the situation. While I digest all the long emails I have gotten and do research into the situation, please feel free to use the comments in this post to discuss the issue.

Mary Weigand is back!

She hasn't updated her blog in well over two months, but thank God she is still at it.

From the paper this morning:

Responding to schools’ evolution teachings

Another school year is under way. I’d like to share some thoughts to help parents.
I host a booth at fairs throughout Wisconsin. We educate folks in interpretation of scientific data. Parents come to my booth for help. I hear comments like: “Help! My son is losing his faith because of evolution being taught in school.” and “I’m sick and tired of evolution and millions of years being shoved down my daughter’s throat.”
After my son took biology at East, I began this outreach. He told me kids are confused about creation/ evolution and don’t know where to get answers.
Space allows only a few points:
Don’t confuse small observable changes in plants and animals to mean they change into other organisms. Perhaps we can say, “Microevolution does not mean macroevolution.”
Evolutionists highlight one organism, i.e. daisies or finches. Small variations are shown, but never a new organism. There’s tremendous variation in plants and animals, color, beak size, length of petal, etc. The fairy tale begins when those small changes are extrapolated to mean more than that. A new organism arising from small changes has never been observed and is therefore not scientific.

When “millions of years” language is heard/read, our kids should ask, “Were you (or anyone) there?” After all, science is supposed to be testable, observable, repeatable. One can claim that, “given enough time anything can happen.” But, really? A great deal of faith is needed to believe that. Children in our schools shouldn’t be subject to such unsubstantiated ideas.
Dinosaurs aren’t really a mystery. Evidence of man with dinosaurs includes:
Drawings, clay dinosaur figures, architectural designs, legends, Chinese calendar, and surprisingly to evolutionists, unfossilized T-rex bones uncovered, having soft tissue and red blood cells. Do students learn these facts?
